Do not look in the mirror every morning and see just your defects; on the contrary, look for your greatest qualities and attributes. List out loud your positive features and be thankful for everything that you are.

Love and accept yourself as you are. Love and respect others as you would like to be loved and respected. One of the most beautiful lessons I learnt in a monastery in India is that a true master is one who teaches the ability to laugh at oneself.

Your reality is like a mirror: the things that scare you in the outside world exist in you, and what you do not want to face up to in yourself, out there in the world will shock you. So work daily towards living in a state of consciousness where you remain alert, so that you may detect how many times you hear or say things that you should not.

Maintain as well a positive mind, a quiet mind whose focus is inward towards your true strength: love.
